Hi! Thanks for visiting my website!

I have penned thousands of marketing pieces and fund raising appeals in the last twenty years, but my real passion is writing for teens and children. My stories have appeared in publications such as Wee Wisdom, Kaleidoscope and Fiction365 as well as in the 2013 Anthology “Origins,” by Division by Zero. My stage play, “The Lies That Bind” was named one of the Top 100 New Plays by Writer’s Digest in their 2009 writing competition.

I’ve completed a middle grade novel of magical realism titled “The Shrinking Stone” and am currently working on the first book in a series for teens that includes paranormal elements. (Sorry, no werewolves, vampires or witches!)

I hold degrees in English and Creative Writing and advanced training from the Children’s Institute of Literature. I serve on the Michigan State Advisory Committee of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Board of Directors of MiFiWriters.

I provide editing, development and proofreading services to other writers, helping them polish their work for submission or publication. For more information on these services, please contact me via the Contact Page and I’ll get back to you.

Come back and visit – new projects are coming!
